Battle of the Bands – 75% style, 25% substance

By Levi . May 19, 2008 . 10:10pm

Music games and I have a rocky history (apparently so do bad puns and I). I never got into Guitar Hero or DDR, but I love Pop'n Music. I can't seem to figure out what it is that makes me like or dislike a music game. So I was cautious going into Battle of the […]

By Spencer . May 13, 2008 . 7:58pm

Touch screen controls probably fit Viva Pinata better than a cursor controlled by an analog stick. We'll find out soon if this is an accurate assessment when THQ publishes Viva Pinata: Pocket Paradise on the Nintendo DS. The portable version will go on sale this fall, around the same time as Viva Pinata: Trouble in […]

Spongebob swims to Xbox Live Arcade

By Spencer . December 26, 2007 . 10:46am

Microsoft cleverly timed their Spongebob Squarepants Xbox 360 exclusive to appear right after the holidays so young Xbox 360 owners have something to immediately pick up. Spongebob might not be my cup of tea, but gamers who favor 2.5D platformers might want to give Spongebob Squarepants Underpants Slam a look regardless of the protagonist. There […]

The triple game charity pack

By Spencer . November 5, 2007 . 9:08am

GameSetWatch discovered the ESA (Entertainment Software Association) has a value packed, Xbox 360 bundle. For $30 you get three games: Fuzion Frenzy 2, Cars and Open Season for the 360. That breaks down to $10 a game, which is a steal considering Fuzion Frenzy 2 runs for about $30 on its own. Granted these games […]

Rocko & Stimpy ressurected in for a game

By Spencer . October 30, 2007 . 11:33am

I’m sort of out of the Nicktoons loop since I'm no longer in their target demographic, but I still have fond memories of their classics. Stuff like Ren & Stimpy, Rocko’s: Modern Life and Ahh! Real Monsters faded away years ago. Out of nowhere they are making a comeback in Nicktoons: Attack of the Toybots, […]

THQ to bring Elements of Destruction on the DS?

By Spencer . October 18, 2007 . 11:43am

Gamefly has a listing up for an unannounced DS game coming from THQ next year. The title is Elements of Destruction and somehow it evaded Nintendo’s lengthy line up even though other titles from THQ are on it. I honestly have no idea what this could be, but if any Siliconera readers knows what it’s […]

THQ brings Journey 3-D to the Nintendo DS?

By Spencer . September 14, 2007 . 8:10am

The ESRB has a listing up for a game under the name Journey 3-D only for the Nintendo DS. I don’t want to dash hopes for Steve Perry fans, but I don’t think this game has anything to do with the rock band. It looks like THQ picked up the license to Journey 3-D, a […]
